The Art of Songwriting
It is hard to believe that the delicate symphonic sounds from the cinematic hit «Toy Story» came from the same man who penned the ironic song «Short People» in the 70s. Both works demonstrate Randy Newman’s incredible musical versatility. It’s a perfect match that on this evening, an enchanting singer who radiates musicality and femininity will take the same stage as this humble and creative American: Tori Amos, best known for her immortal hit «Cornflake Girl». Like Randy Newman, she will perform solo in Basel – seated only at the piano.
